Health Care Bill and the Party of NO

Let's take a look at the "Baucus" Health Care Bill coming out of the Senate finance committee. There was no compromise with the Republicans....right? Wrong. Here are some of the things in the bill that are Republican ideas:

Purchasing health insurance across state lines to increase competition

Creation of high-risk pools for people with pre-existing medical conditions

Prevention and wellness incentives

No public option

Verification of citizenship

No public funds for abortion

High deductible policies

No death panels

How many Republicans voted for the Bill? Zero. Republicans claim they want health care reform, but I just don't know what they mean by the type of health care reform they want.
